Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.Revelation 15:1-215:1.Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.
15:2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
It is about the song of those who are victorious.
Verse 1 = the time of the end of the wrath of God, namely the three times seven judgments from Holy Spirit God, the Son of God, and Father God that end in the doomsday and the everlasting hell.
Verse 2 = the people who stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire before the throne of the heavenly kingdom.
Revelation 4:64:6.Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.
Where can men flee from the wrath of God until being able to stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire? It is in the true water baptism.
Matthew 3:7-8,153:7.But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 "Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,
3:15 But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
The true water baptism is according to the will of God and we are baptized like Jesus was baptized.
The requirement is believing Jesus and repenting or being dead to sin. Matthew 3:163:16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediatelyfrom the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
Romans 6:46:4.Therefore we were buriedwith Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raisedfrom the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Matthew 28:1928:19."Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
As the implementation, one who has believed Jesus and repented or died to sin must be buried in water with Him in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, namely the Lord Jesus Christ to be raised from water with Him and get the new or heavenly life (the heavens are opened), namely the life in the anointing and fullness of Holy Spirit. We get the renewal continually until we are as perfect as Jesus is to stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire before the throne of the New Jerusalem.
If the water baptism is true in the foundation, requirement, implementation, and result, namely the renewal, the following things will happen:
- We flee from the wrath to come, so we do not perish.
- We enter the heavenly kingdom and stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire before the throne of heavenly kingdom.
3:5.Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
Thus, the sea of glass mingled with fire refers to the increase and peak of the true water baptism.
If the water baptism is wrong in the foundation, requirement, implementation, and result, the heavens will not be opened, so one will be in the wrath of God still and not be able to enter the heavenly kingdom. Matthew 3:7-93:7.But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 "Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,
3:9. "and do not think to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.
If the water baptism is wrong, the descendants of Abraham become the brood of viper or one keeps on being in the wrath of God and perdition. The opportunity and mercy of God for the Gentiles who are like the stones are opened, so they can enter the true water baptism to get the true result, namely the hard stones become the descendants of Abraham.
Therefore, the Israelites and Gentiles become the descendants of Abraham who deserve to receive the promise of God, namely standing on the sea of glass mingled with fire.
The Pharisees and Sadducees are a part of the Israelites who do not repent or die to sin, but they force themselves to enter the implementation of the true water baptism. It is the same as not being dead yet, but buried already. There are three kinds of renewal through the true water baptism as follows
- The renewal of heart.
1 Peter 3:20-21
3:20.who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us--baptism(not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
6:5.Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6:6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
6:7 So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
On the days of Noah, the hearts of men including the sons of God tended to be evil or not sincere. It means being as clever as the serpent.
It results in the deeds which make heart of God, parents, and pastor grieved, namely the sinful ones up to the peak.
The peak of sins refers to the sins concerning eating-drinking such as smoking, getting drunk, and drugs abuse as well as the ones concerning marrying-being given in marriage or the fornication between man and woman who are not legal spouse, pornography, and wrong marriage or getting married without the blessings of the parents, mix marriage, divorce-remarrying, and marrying-being given in marriage.
The consequence is dragging the judgment or wrath of God to come, namely the floods destroying all possessions including the salvation until men perish forever.
Therefore, a servant of God must experience the renewal of bad heart into the U conscience that is sincere like dove.
The facts found in it are as follows:
2 Corinthians 9:7-9
- Honesty and seriousness about the true teaching Word.
2:7.in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility,
Toward the true teaching Word, we must hear and obey it. Toward the false teachings, we must avoid it.
Being serious in the Word means holding fast and obeying the true teaching Word until we do not commit sin, but keep on living in righteousness and holiness.
- The conscience which tends to give or commit good deeds.
1 Chronicles 29:14,17-18
29:14.But who am I, and who are my people, That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, And of Your own we have given You.
29:17. I know also, my God, that You test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my heartI have willinglyoffered all these things; and now with joyI have seen Your people, who are present here to offer willingly to You.
29:18 O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, our fathers, keep this forever in the intent of the thoughts of the heartof Your people, and fix their heart toward You.
We give willingly and joyfully as follows:
We can give until submitting our whole life to God willingly and joyfully.
- Returning the tithes and offerings that belong to God.
- Giving to the work of God.
- Giving to others who are in need.
9:7.So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
9:9 As it is written: "He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever."
As a result, God is able to give us His grace abundantly for the following things:
- Preserving our life abundantly, namely we always give thanks to Him.
- Making the good work abound toward us like the robe which reaches the toes. This refers to the garment of the bride.
19:8.And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
We are ready for welcoming Jesus' second coming.
- The renewal of the characteristics.
3:7.But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
3:8 "Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance,
It refers to the characteristic of the viper.
21:4.Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way.
21:5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses: "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread."
21:6 So the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bitthe people; and many of the people of Israel died.
'our soul loathes this worthless bread'= loathing manna.
Being bitten by the viper is the same as having the characteristic of the viper.
A part of the Israelites has the characteristic of the viper, namely loathing manna or the shepherding Word.
78:23.Yet He had commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of heaven,
78:24 Had rained down mannaon them to eat, And given them of the bread of heaven.
78:25 Men ate angels' food; He sent them food to the full.
The shepherding Word refers to the true teaching Word which is entrusted by God to a pastor that he may preach to the congregation faithfully, in order, continually, and repetitively to become the spiritual food for the congregation. It guarantees the entire life of the congregation, namely the physical and spiritual one.
Loathing manna is the same as not being willing to consume the shepherding Word. It is the same as getting bored, criticizing, being sleepy, and so on or not being fervent in spirit anymore in the spiritual things, but being fervent in committing sins up to the peak until entering the second death or everlasting perdition in the hell.
15:22.And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."
15:23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us."
15:24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
15:26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
15:27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
7:30.And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed.
The characteristics of the Gentiles are like the dog and swine, namely the tongue which licks the vomit or gossiping, slandering, and blaspheming as well as committing sins up to the peak.
The consequences are being demon-possessed, getting the destruction in marriage and children, as well as suffering severely. If it continues, one will perish forever.
Because a part of Israelites loathe the shepherding Word, the mercy and goodness of God are opened for the Gentiles to lick the crumbs.
It means as follows:
The results are as follows:
- Consuming the shepherding Word seriously and with a need.
- 'Yes, Lord'= justifying the shepherding Word, so we can do the introspection in our life. Finding sin, we can confess.
- The characteristic of dog is changed into the one of sheep, namely being shepherded well and correctly.
- 'lying on the bed'= sincerity and peace. All things become easy and light.
- The power of healing.
- All things are finished.
- When Jesus comes a second time, we will receive the crown of the bride.
1 Peter 5:4
5:4.and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glorythat does not fade away.
- The renewal of the tongue.
15:2.And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
15:3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
The song of Moses and the Lamb refers to the song of victory over the trinity of Satan, the source of all bad things.
16:13.And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
This is the tongue of the trinity of Satan, namely the unclean spirit that controls the tongue of man, especially the Gentiles until they lie, gossip, slander, murmur, and blaspheme.
2:8.And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
2:9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven(Satan), and of those on earth (false prophets), and of those under the earth(the Antichrist),
2:11 and that every tongue should confessthat Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus is obedient until His death on the cross for getting the name which is above every name for defeating the trinity of Satan and set our tongue free from the trinity of Satan.
Thus, entering the true water baptism is the same as getting the victory over the trinity of Satan, so our tongue only praises God, testifies, and worships Him. We cry out the name of Jesus with saying "Alleluia".
This is the voice of the bride.
106:1.Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Every time we remember the mercy of God, we can give thanks and cry out "Alleluia". The mercy and goodness of God we can easily feel are when we can breathe.
Anytime we cry out the name of Jesus, He as the King of all kings is in our midst with the power of His name for defeating the trinity of Satan, so we can live in righteousness. All problems are solved. The failure is changed into success and beauty.
Let us cry out the name of Jesus. The power of His name will work to help us.
When Jesus comes a second time, we will be changed to be as perfect as He is for being worthy to welcome His second coming on the glorious clouds.
19:6.And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
We do not stumble in words. We only shout for joy, saying "Alleluia". The doors of the marriage supper of the Lamb, Paradise, and New Jerusalem are opened for us. We stand on the sea of glass for singing the victory song.
God blesses you.
